dangerous men clip

I’ve seen Dangerous Men twice now and it’s just as brain-breaking as the trailer implies. John Rad‘s mesmerizing B-movie cocktail of sex, violence, and revenge brought the house down at this year’s Fantastic Fest and it will soon start collapsing movie theater roofs all over the nation (in a purely metaphorical manner, of course). There are a ton of great “bad” movies out there, but this film, shot over 26 years by a bootstrapping Iranian immigrant, is top-notch, grade-A insanity. There has never been anything else quite like it – it has no right to exist or to be seen in any format beyond a crummy VHS tape passed along from one curious set of hands to another. But here it is.

We’re pleased to present an exclusive new clip from Dangerous Men, which is being re-released by Drafthouse Films, a company that has a habit of rescuing odd and unusual films from oblivion. These 60 seconds represent only a tiny fraction of the movie’s pleasures. Know that the fight scene depicted in the video below isn’t even the most bizarre fight scene in the movie. There’s a lot more where this came from.

Prepare to have your psyche annihilated by the new Dangerous Men clip after the jump.

dangerous men trailer

Dangerous Men is a very strange, very special beast that has to be seen to be believed. Although you could be forgiven for thinking it was written and shot by aliens who had never seen a movie (but had a few described to them), it’s actually the one and only film of the late John S. Rad. It’s a singular, glorious, totally unbelievable, jaw-droppingly bizarre, wonderfully tone-deaf slice of pure, uncut insanity. We can debate Rad’s lack of technical merits all day long, but Dangerous Men is bursting with imagination and life. Like Edward D. Wood Jr., here is a “bad” filmmaker whose work is cleverer and more brimming with personality than most movies made by professionals.

Now Drafthouse Films, the company that has previously resurrected long-lost masterpieces of total insanity like Miami Connection, The Visitor, and Roar!, has acquired Dangerous Men and plans to unleash it upon on an unsuspecting public.

Experience the Dangerous Men trailer for yourself after the jump.
